From 12:15 am on Saturday, June 17 until midnight on Friday, June 30, the O-Train service on the Trillium Line will be temporarily replaced by Route 107 bus service, due to annual maintenance work. Route 107 will operate every 15 minutes during this period and the buses will travel parallel to the O-Train routing between Bayview and South Keys Stations, with limited stops along the way. In addition to Route 107, there may be other bus route options that work better for you.
